Girls learn from national star with First Choice Coaching

Tammy Beaumont cast her eye over potential stars of the future for England after holding a masterclass with First Choice Coaching at St Faith’s on Monday.

The 27-year-old batsman was voted player of the tournament last year when helping England win the Women’s Cricket World Cup.

Together with Sarah Taylor, she set the highest second-wicket partnership in the history of the Women’s Cricket World Cup (275), and was named in the ICC Women’s ODI team of the year for 2017.

Beaumont was in Cambridge to help coach 53 girls from across the county over two sessions – for seven to 11-year-olds in the morning and for over 12s in the afternoon.

“The event was a huge success,” said FCC director Dan Heath.

“Tammy’s coaching was very, very good. With the incredible success the England’s women team has had recently, she can add some really valuable knowledge and experience.

“Tammy focused on delivering a session on ‘range hitting’ which helps the girls improve their boundary hitting ability, something which is very important in the modern game.

“Initially the girls were in awe and quite nervous, however they soon relaxed into the session and really did benefit incredibly from Tammy’s presence.”

FCC have previously hosted sessions with James Taylor and Tom Westley, and will be running further events with international cricketers during this summer, along with a comprehensive coaching programme.
